Owner description: Arrowtown’s surprises at every corner with new activities, restaurants, cafes and accommodation options. You don’t have to dig far in this sophisticated, yet quaint village to find why this charming town oozes heritage whether the newly restored miner’s cottages, the latest exhibit at the Lakes District Museum or the magnificent trails. Arrowtown is renowned for its café and restaurant culture. Whether fine dining, or enjoying a casual pizza or pie, there are delicious options for every budget and time span. Boutique beers and local wines are just some of the beverages on offer. Arrowtown’s tree lined streets, shops and cafes housed in original buildings and its proximity to walking /cycling tracks, vineyards, golf courses and ski fields, make it a must visit destination. Arrowtown sits only 20 minutes from Queenstown and a mere 15 minutes from Queenstown airport.

Recently revisited the quaint village - Arrowtown. Had a very pleasant time meandering through the small streets which have food shops, designer shops and some delightful cafés. Take time to visit the Chinese mining section and enjoy some of the walks along the river etc.
I suggest you do not just rush through this village but to slow down - sit and soak up the relaxed atmosphere.

I am a local but I love going to Arrowtown to eat, hang out with friends over coffee and going for walks on the trails around the town. It is not big but big enough to suit everyone. Winter is different from Summer, so it can be visited all year round. The pies are great from the bakery. A big red bus tour from Q'town is a nice way to see it as well.

So lovely to meander through the main street of Arrowtown, so picturesque. Great dining experiences and the kids loved the lolly shop.

The quaint Arrowtown village is good for spending a day, browsing though idiosyncratic designer shops, food shops, caffes etc. Of not the Postmaster's Residence, but there are other food places as well. The view is idyllic and the pace is, or should be, slow. Take a good camera with both wide angle and tele lense. But that is necessary everywhere you go in the area...
